The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Toy Fair 2015
« on: February 12, 2015, 03:37 PM »
Eh, when Jeff Labovitz was in charge the last few years (he may still be in charge - I'm not sure if Kim is an addition to the SW team or a replacement for him), people were still blaming Derryl. 

I'm sure poor Derryl will continue to get flak even though he hasn't been directly in charge of the line for 3-4 years now.  :-\

Today's Daily Deal at Entertainment Earth is 40% off a selection of Kre-O Transformers stuff in case anyone was still interested in these...

Star Wars Bladebuilders Revealed.  No surprise that the parts include an Episode 7 style hilt.

More interesting to me in that article was this:  "says Kim Boyd, senior director of the Star Wars brand for Hasbro."

Kim Boyd was previously a senior director for Kre-O at Hasbro...  first time I recall seeing her name attached to Star Wars team.

If this line dies without a new Sim Aloo, and ideally the rest of the boring ass dignitaries...

If they are cranking out a new movie every year, will there be room in the line for figures from 30 year old movies at that point?

With each new movie they add, I have to imagine that will fill the "idea well" so full that stuff like Sim Aloo will be stuck at the bottom of the well for a long, long time...

as are glimpses of the 6" figures we know are coming but have never been shown before, like 3PO, Boushh, and the Emperor.

Boushh and Emperor were shown at the New York Comic Con party:

Honestly, I was quite surprised we weren't down by 2-3 after that first ten minutes.

We played 2.5 periods against Vancouver with only 10 forwards and then those 10 forwards had to play less than 24hrs later.  Our 2nd leading goal scorer is out for 3 months, one of our top PK guys is out for a month.  Our lines were completely scrambled thanks to those injuries and we were out-shot 15-3 at one point in the first. 

Like I said, at least we got a point.  :-\

So how is the EU poll going to be handled this year?

I think Scott had mentioned earlier in the thread about doing a separate wishlist for Rebels and then one poll for the rest of the EU (everything else).

It'll be up to everyone's personal tastes I guess if they want to vote for the "new" Dis-nE-U characters or the old Star Wars Legends EU characters.

Non-canon EU has less chance than a womp rat in the sights of Luke's T-16.

Sure seems that way.  On one hand, that bums me out... but on the other hand, with the line on life support, tossing figures like Guri, Lumpy, and Ackmena into the line probably isn't the best idea anyway. :(

Anyone actually excited for the weekend?

I'm 40% hopeful that we'll get to see some new 3.75" figures from the collector/premium line...  but 60% worried that Toy Fair will be all about the 5POA line and the 6" Black Series.  :-\

The Wookiee Arcade / Star Wars Humble Bundle

I'm not 100% sure how this Humble Bundle thing works since I've never bought one before (you pay $$$ for stuff, money goes to charity I guess?), but this looks almost too good to be true -

Looking forward to reading the next stupid idea that WB/DC offers to try to keep up with Disney/Marvel adding Spidey to the mix finally -

'Hey everyone, we're cramming The Wonder Twins into Batman V. Superman - Beginning of the Dawn of Justice League of America Superfriends Challenge'!!!   ::)

I still really, really hate that Batman V Superman movie title... :P

I was on the fence about buying these, but now I think I'll pass on all three and wait to see the reviews on the Imp Troop Transport before I decide on that one.

Saw a pic of the Imp Troop Transport filled up with VOTC Stormies on Yakface's facebook page::

Not terrible, but man, if only those troop sockets were a tad bit deeper...   still on the fence, but won't be surprised if I end up passing on this one too.

Repacks of 5POA figures in a plain white box?  Uh...  pass.

Anyone legitimately thinking about buying these?
